Buhari to return to UK for follow-up treatment – Presidency

The Presidency on Thursday said President Muhammadu Buhari has not changed his plan to return to his doctors in London, United Kingdom, for follow-up treatment.

A report had alleged that Buhari had chosen to bring his doctors to Nigeria instead of jetting out to see them in London.

The report alleged that the president has recalled an advance party which has already left the country.

“It is false news. We are not aware of the reported advance movements,” said presidential spokesman Garba Shehu.

“The last time the president spoke about this, he said he would return to his doctors after some time. We are not aware that this has changed.”

Buhari had shortly after his return to the country following his 49-day medical vacation in London mentioned that there would be a need for him to still visit his doctors in the United Kingdom.

He said: “I am feeling much better now, there may, however, be a need to have further follow-ups within some weeks.”

“I couldn’t recall being so sick since I was a young man,” he added, referring to “blood transfusions, going to the laboratories and so on and so forth”.

However, the presidency is yet to state when the president is expected to see the doctors.
